Movie Review: John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum


Anyone who has seen any of the 3 John Wick movies knows how extremely violent they are. None of these movies are about a great story, they are all about expertly choreographed gun-play, martial arts and extraordinary action. A high number of the violent scenes in “John Wick 3” are so well done they surpass the extreme action of the previous 2 movies. There is a knife fight towards the beginning of this movie that is incredible, another fight scene in a library with a very tall assassin that is as well filmed as it was violent. There are scenes with motorcycles that are some of the best I have ever seen, and some other scenes with different horses that are extremely impressive. If you forego any sign of a screenplay or common sense and concentrate on the incredible amount of work that went into a movie like this, you cannot help but appreciate how well all of this was done.

John Wick 3 stars Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry and both must have trained for a long time to look as good as they did in the action scenes in this film. Also returning is Laurence Fishburne and Anjelica Huston and both are excellent in their roles. This movie starts when John Wick 2 ends and the convoluted story of a consortium of assassins and a 15 million dollar bounty put on Wick at times makes little sense, but none of this matters against the extremely well done action scenes.

The Rotten Tomatoes ratings for John Wick 3 are a very high 88% and I agree with this rating and highly recommend this movie, but only for people who do not mind extreme violence like this.
